  • A little about a lot

    Tomorrow, as the 44th President of the United States places his hand on the very same Bible that former President Abraham Lincoln did so many years ago, history will be made.

    Record crowds are expected to watch the inauguration of President Barack Obama, both in person and on television news channels.

    They gathered, worshiped and laughed together this weekend, all with one common purpose - keeping the dream of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. alive.

    A pivotal figure and speaker during the Civil Rights Movement, King was shot and killed in Memphis, Tenn. on April 4, 1968.

    Five years prior, at a march in Washington, King said, in what is perhaps his most famous speech, "I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."

    In what the company hopes is only a temporary move, Ingersoll Rand has laid off 21 employees. The announcement came Friday and was effective on Monday."Hopefully, it is going to be short lived," said Joe Fair, human resources manager. "It could change. We just don't know."

    The 21 employees amount to 10 percent of the air compressor manufacturer's local workforce and brings the number of current employees to 175.

    Fair said the slowing economy led to the layoffs.

  • Ode to the snowflake party queen

    As I write this, the nation is focused on Washington, D.C., and the inauguration of Barack Obama. However, my attention is eight or so miles away in Alexandria, Va.

    My granddaughter, Caroline, turns 7 on Jan. 21.

    While her festivities aren't on the scale of an inaugural gala, on Sunday, Jan. 25, she and six of her friends are having a snowflake party. My daughter, Alison, has been planning it for months.
